"......to boot."

Posted by Q on March 07, 2002

I was reading a "Remeber When" story and came across an interesting phrase. I cut the portion and pasted it here to best describe how it was used.

"Remeber when you got your windshield cleaned, oil checked and gas pumped without asking, all for free, every time, and, you didn't pay for air, and you
got trading stamps to boot."

Anyone know the "to boot" origin? Thanks.
